NeuroSky Upgrades SDK, Allows For Eye Blink, Brainwave-Powered Games

NeuroSky Upgrades SDK, Allows For Eye Blink, Brainwave-Powered Games

June 30, 2010 | By Tom Curtis




NeuroSky announced upgrade v2.1 for their Mindset SDK, which includes eye blink detection in addition to the tool’s brainwave measuring features.

The Mindset interface detects electrical impulses to measure brain activity, and can translate certain mental states and brain patterns into digital input for use in games and applications. The tool’s SDK allows developers to use unfiltered brainwave measurements for more complicated programs.

NeuroSky hopes the inclusion of blink detection will further enhance this interface for use in games and other software.

"With the inclusion of the blink APIs in the MindSet Development Tools, we are providing developers with another powerful tool for application design," explained Tansy Brook, the Head of Communications for NeuroSky.

"Blinks are more immediately actionable than brainwaves, making this feature a great 'jumping off point' for introducing people to Brain-Computer Interface technology and helping them to become familiar with this new genre of interface."

Several applications and games for the Mindset interface are available for download, and the tool was used in several children’s toys in 2009.
